The Design of Things to Come
By: Greg Faist
How Ordinary People Create Extraordinary Products
Many successful products today signify a revolution in product design. Today’s innovation is driven by customer emotion, self-image and fantasy—not just product function. This book reveals a new generation of products that feel perfect, fulfill deep unmet desires and transform consumer lifestyles. These products have benefits that are so self-evident, they sell themselves.
Co-authors Peter Boatwright, associate professor of marketing at Carnegie Mellon, Jonathan Cagan, professor of mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon, and Craig Vogel, professor of design at the University of Cincinnati, profile a new generation of innovators, revealing exactly how they are inspiring people and shepherding their visions to a profitable reality.
